Austenland by Shannon Hale (2007)
Austenland's main character, Jane Hayes, is obsessed with Mr. Darcy as he is portrayed by Colin Firth in BBC's version of Pride and Prejudice. And what woman isn't? Jane travels to England to spend three weeks at a resort immersing herself in Jane Austen's world. Here she is surrounded by actors based on Jane Austen's fictional characters. Jane Hayes struggles to decipher which actors are solely acting, which ones are real and sincere, and whether or not she should enjoy her bizarre vacation. Check the catalog for availability

Shannon Hale has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I have enjoyed reading all of her other novels, although this one is definitely my favorite. I rate this book fantastic and highly entertaining. I recommend it to all Jane Austen (and Colin Firth) fans.
